Are you in the New York area and suffering from lower back pain, or pain in your groin, buttocks, or legs. Have you been diagnosed with sacroiliac joint dysfunction? Did you know that a couple injections could help relieve most, if not all, of the pain that you have been dealing with each and every day?
The sacroiliac joint is located next to the spine, and connects each of your hip bones to the sacrum. If either or both of these joints experience inflammation, discomfort is felt which leads to increased pain. Once you are diagnosed with sacroiliac joint dysfunction, then a simple injection in to the sacroiliac joint will likely help relieve and manage the pain. The injection will contain a corticosteroid that will reduce the inflammation, thereby relieving much, if not all, of the pain.
If the sacroiliac joint steroid injection is successful in reducing a large amount of the pain, your physician will likely have you start a rehabilitation program in order to further improve the relief. The injection combined with physical therapy is a great way to get back to doing the things that you used to do before you were sidelined with the chronic sacroiliac joint pain.
Fast and Effective Solution to Sacroiliac Joint Pain
We specialize in pain management by using injections, and we have several clinics located in the NY area. Many of the treatments that we perform can be done on an outpatient basis. One such treatment is sacroiliac joint steroid injections that can help reduce chronic pain in sacroiliac joints associated with inflammation. The typical procedure for a steroid injection to treat sacroiliac joint dysfunction takes only 15 to 30 minutes, and pain relief is almost immediate, which is due to the anesthetic. The steroid starts to reduce inflammation after 3 or 4 days, which is when you should start to experience the largest amount of pain relief.
Although steroid injections are not a cure for sacroiliac joint dysfunction, they can significantly reduce the inflammation and pain in the joints, which will allow a wider range of motion for the patient. Depending on your situation and your response to the injection, you physician may have you start a program that includes physical therapy and rehabilitation, which will help prolong the effects you experienced from the injection and help to prevent the pain from increasing in intensity.
